The platform mashups APIs from different digital CH resources, such as Europeana, the Digital Public Library of America, Rijksmuseum, the British Library, National Library of Australia, YouTube, Historypin etc, and provides a single powerful new service, which gives access to a huge set of heterogeneous items (images, videos, different metadata schemata etc). WITH supports a variety of different data models (e.g., EDM, LIDO etc) and formats (e.g. XML, JSON-LD), and resolves interoperability issues by performing automatic mappings in the backend.
Faceted search and navigation
WithCulture offers federated and faceted search services, which enable the user to explore digital CH by applying multiple search criteria in different combinations. e.g., a user may wish to search for images from certain providers with specific rights etc. The user can navigate through the results via different presentation views and retrieve more information about items of interest. .
Via a personal workspace, users can aggregate and organise different types of cultural resources collected from external resources or uploaded by themselves and create their own collections and exhibitions using different presentation views. Users can annotate/tag cultural items and link them with external vocabularies and thesauri. The UI supports collaborative work and interactions between users so that they can create new stories together, share their creations with other users or user groups, like and comment other users’ collections, form teams etc.
